After avoiding the big question, Cameron cryptically adds: “You have to find someone in the same place as you are. Timing is everything.

“If you get into a relationship where you want something the guy doesn't want, it's never gonna work.

“You're never going to get him to be in that place. No matter how old you are, finding the guy who's in the same place as you are and wants to show up is the only way a relationship works, period."

While Cam and Benji are thought to have begun dating this year, they met over four years ago, through mutual friend Nicole Richie, who is married to Benji’s brother Joel.
